What Is Numerology?

Numerology is the study of the symbolism of numbers. It is used to determine a person's personality, strengths and talents, obstacles to be overcome, inner needs, emotional reactions and ways of dealing with others.

Numerology is any study of the purported divine, mystical or other special relationship between a count or measurement and life.

Numerology is any belief in divine, mystical or other special relationship between a number and some coinciding events. It has many systems and traditions and beliefs.

Numerology is an area of study and intellectual tradition that addresses the relationships between the hidden, philosophical, esoteric meaning of numbers and their manifestation in human life. The general aim of the practical numerology is to find out the life purpose of a specific human being, his or her true potential, and also to find the ways of revealing and developing that potential.

Numerology and numerological divination by systems such as isopsephy were popular among early mathematicians, but are no longer considered part of mathematics and are regarded as pseudomathematics or pseudoscience by modern scientists.

Numerology is often associated with the paranormal, alongside astrology and similar divinatory arts.


The roots of numerology can be traced back some 10,000 years or more to Egypt and Babylonia. Pythagoras, who developed many of the basic theorems that form the foundation of modern mathematics (including the right triangle theorem taught in math classes today) is credited with formally organizing the field about 2600 years ago in ancient Greece.

Numbers Definitions

Alphabetic Systems

There are many numerology systems which assign numerical value to the letters of an alphabet.
For example, numbers are assigned to letters as follows:.
1 = a, j, s
2 = b, k, t,
3 = c, l, u,
4 = d, m, v,
5 = e, n, w,
6 = f, o, x,
7 = g, p, y,
8 = h, q, z,
9 = i, r,
-----and then summed.


2,689 > 2+6+8+9 = 25 > 2+5 = 7,
Fine > 6+9+5+5 = 25 > 2+5 = 7
